  1. Thanks so much for this video, it was super informative. Although, I wonder if his role at DATBootcamp played into a bit of conflict of interest here (meaning his general positive outlook on dentistry). Do you personally have any insights on dentistry and its future? Insights on staying general vs. specializing?
  2. This is a refreshing take to hear! I'm actually already a first year dental student in Canada. Could I ask if you think general dentistry is still worth it or if spending more time and competing for a spot in specializations in a better way to go about it?
  3. I'm currently a dental student in first year and I've seen numerous forums and discussions about the fall of dentistry. I want to see if any newly grads or dental students have any concerns or positive insights/myth busters. Also, no I'm not in dentistry just for the money. I like the detailed manual work and I think I'm kind of good at it for someone who just started. But the concerns listed online are so overwhelming that it makes me think my interest in the profession is not going to be enough for me to even pay off my student debt let alone make a comfortable living.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm thinking of applying to med again this year despite starting dental school in the fall. Do I have to put my dental school enrolment in my academic background on OMSAS? Would there be any repercussions if I don't report it? Is it even possible to apply to med without having completed the professional degree (as in my case)? (only applying to uoft btw) Also, if anyone is in a similar situation and is choosing to report their enrolment in dental school, how are you filling out the information in the "Institutions" tab on OMSAS? Would professional school count as
  5. Realistically I don’t think I can get the whole application done before next Tuesday (though that’s the plan) but I’m quite unsure since the school I want to apply to acknowledges that they might have applicants coming from other professional schools. Thanks for your reply!

Would professional school count as "Post-secondary - undergraduate"? What are you putting as the degree type?
  7. I can resonate with your thought of creating a more standardized system for evaluation but you could have conveyed that without bringing down another area of study (Arts). Personally, as a science student, I consider majority of the required courses for a BA really difficult. Everyone's different and excels in areas differently, you can't directly compare the two just on your own experience. Also, the algorithmic way of thinking that's promoted in a BSc isn't the most helpful in the practical side of medicine which has a lot more humanity involved, so I can understand why a diverse cohort is p
  8. I wish they would just announce their decisions already. Just give me my rejection and go lol
  9. When I applied to Buffalo last cycle, I asked both buffalo and AADSAS and they said you can just fill the space up with random numbers (I used all 9's) to get through the application and that I didn't need to get one. You just have to make sure your DAT transcript gets sent. I would suggest calling AADSAS and the schools you're applying to
  10. No emails yet. Wondering if they'll inform some of the waitlisters lower on the list (probably me lol) that they probably won't have space for them this year?
